Count Michael Bloomberg as someone who doesn't think any lives would have been saved inside an Aurora, Colorado movie theater last Friday if MORE people had been carrying guns.

During an appearance on Face the Nation, the NYC Mayor was asked about remarks made by a Texas Congressman in which Louie Gohmert speculated that James Holmes could have been stopped and fewer people killed/injured if only movie goers had been "carrying."

Bloomberg's responded by basically making like Seth Meyers and asking: REALLY?!? You really think it will be safer to create a "wild west" like country where every other person is holding a weapon?

In the wake of the massacre, many celebrities took to Twitter and also called on Obama/politicians to crack down on gun control. The President has made no attempt to do so during his time in office so far.

It's an issue Democrats will not let go of, and one even many Republicans now believe must be addressed:

Mitt Romney has released tax returns from 2010 and 2011. But he has so far refused to delve further into his past, raising questions about what sort of loopholes or offshore accounts the Presidential candidate is hiding.

Mitt Romney Campaigns

"We've given all people need to know and understand about our financial situation and about how we live our life," Ann Romney said today on Good Morning America.

But even prominent conservatives such as Haley Barbour think Romney ought be more forthright, and a USA Today survey of 539 adults show one-third of Republicans agree.

It hasn't been the best week for Romney. He was booed during an NAACP after making a comment about Obamacare.

Where do you stand on the tax return issue? Should Romney release more documents?

Rush Limbaugh recently referred to a Georgetown student as a slut because she wanted to have birth control covered by her health insurance plan.

Incredibly, however, this comment was positively rational compared to the conspiracy theory spewed forth by the radio host on Tuesday.

  • Rush Limbaugh Shot
  • Shot of Bane

Discussing The Dark Knight Rises and its primary villain, a terrorist played by Tom Hardy named Bane, Limbaugh went off about the clear connection between this bad guy's name and the issue Democrats have been hammering home in recent election ads: Mitt Romney's role in the company Bain.

It's a conspiracy, people!

"The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e," Limbaugh ranted. "What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there's now this make-believe controversy? Bain.

"The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date's been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?"

Well, readers, he's asking: Do you think it's a coincidence? Or is Christopher Nolan a secret agent for Barack Obama? Weigh in now: Are liberals behind the casting of Bane in The Dark Knight Rises?

Mitt Romney is in the midst of an historical fundraising campaign, raking in endorsements and cash from billionaires around the country.

But Sarah Silverman has an idea that might level the playing field for Barack Obama, and it's centered around mega wealthy casino magnate Sheldon Adelson.

With that Republican offering to hand $100 million over to Romney, the comedian has made an indecent proposal to Adelson: give the same amount to Obama instead and she will engage in "traditional lesbian sex" with the 78-year old.

Do you how many Republican billionaires are giving money to Romney? Silverman asked in the following video. All of them. How many of them are getting scissored by a bikini-bottomed Jewess with big naturals? How many, Sheldon?

Should Sheldon Adelson give $100 million to Barack Obama?

The bond between Beyonce and Michelle Obama just grew a little stronger.

In May, the First Lady took her daughters to a Knowles concert, a night out that followed a Tumblr post by Beyonce that praised Obama as "ULTIMATE example of a strong African-American woman."

Obama, in turn, responded to the praise with a Tweet that read: "Thank you for the beautiful letter and for being a role model who kids everywhere can look up to.”

Now, Beyonce has made that letter even more public, posting a video reading of it that serves as a campaign ad for Michelle's husband, given the donation link at the end. Watch now:

Brian Edwards and Tom Privitere, a New Jersey couple married in 2010, were stunned - and irate - to find themselves on an anti-gay political ad campaign.

The photo of the two men had been posted innocuously on Edwards' personal blog and was originally set against the backdrop of the N.Y. City skyline.

A doctored version shows the gay couple standing in a Colorado setting and was used in a political ad to attack a Republican who supported civil unions:

Gay Couple Ad

The tagline for the attack ad, which was sponsored by Public Advocate of the United States, was: "State Sen. Jean White's Idea of 'Family Values?'"

White later lost the primary.

Now, with the help of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), the duo and photographer Kristina Hill are all threatening to sue the organization behind the ad and its president, Eugene Delgaudio, if they do not stop using the photo.

"Our initial reaction was complete shock," said Privitere, 37, who lives with Edwards in Montclair, N.J. The couple has been together for 12 years.

A D.C. police officer has been taken off a motorcycle escort for White House officials after he allegedly threatened to shoot First Lady Michelle Obama.

Not only that, the officer "then used his phone to retrieve a picture of the firearm he said he would use," according to a Washington Post report.

The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating and the Secret Service has been told of the alleged Michelle Obama threat, the Post says.

The alleged comment came Wednesday as officers from the Special Operations Division discussed threats against President Barack Obama.

It was not immediately clear where the alleged conversation took place or exactly how many officers were taking part in the conversation.

During that conversation,the officer allegedly said he would shoot the First Lady, then used his phone to show the firearm he said he would use.

It was not immediately clear what type of firearm was shown.

Too much substance, not enough style?

That's the gist of what President Barack Obama says his biggest mistake was since getting to the White House nearly three and a half years ago.

Obama says tackling the job as a national policy wonk rather than the inspiring figure he cut in the 2008 campaign has resulted in some hurdles.

"When I think about what we've done well and what we haven't done well," the president told CBS in an interview, "the mistake of my first term - the first couple of years - was thinking that this job was just about getting the policy right."

"And that's important. But the nature of this office is also to tell a story to the American people that gives them a sense of unity and purpose and optimism, especially during economically tough times," Obama said in an exchange with Charlie Rose.

"It's funny, when I ran, everybody said, 'he can give a good speech but can he do the job?' In my first two years, I think the notion was, 'Well, he's been juggling and managing a lot of stuff, but where's the story that tells us where he's going?'"

Speaking before an already-skeptical NAACP crowd, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney raised eyebrows Wednesday when he said he'd do more for the African-American community than Barack Obama, the nation's first black president.

He then drew jeers when he lambasted Obama's health care law.

After promising to repeal Obamacare, which will help an estimated seven million uninsured African-Americans obtain coverage, he heard it from the audience ...

"If you want a president who will make things better in the African-American community, you are looking at him," Romney unflinchingly told the group.

Pausing as some in the crowd heckled, he added, "You take a look!"

"For real?" yelled someone in the crowd at the annual convention.

The reception was rocky at times, though generally polite as the GOP hopeful sought to woo a Democratic bloc that voted heavily for Obama in 2008.

They will undoubtedly do so again, but Romney gets credit for even showing to an event that could not be farther from his political wheelhouse.

Romney's best moments came when his comments about improving education and employment for the lower and middle classes drew applause.

If you thought the floor of the U.S. Congress was a dysfunctional war zone, this may restore your faith in our government somewhat: Mohammed Shawabka, a member of Jordan's parliament, recently threw a shoe and pulled a gun in a LIVE TV debate.

Shawabka heaved his shoe and then pointed his piece at Mansour Seif-Eddine Murad, an activist-turned-politician, during a TV debate about the violence in Syria. 

You gotta see this:

Reports say heated words were exchanged, with Murad eventually accusing Shawabka of being an Israeli Mossad agent and a thief. That was the last straw.

Shawabka threw his shoe at Murad, who dodged with aplomb, and then pulled a gun. Furniture started flying and the terrified host tried to separate them.

And... end credits!

The AP reports that Shawabka is being investigated for his role in the altercation, which fortunately ended with no one injured or killed. Shocking.
